Here is another alternative to give another spin to the lowly chicken wing. Add some Jamaican twist to the flavors with its spices packed into the marinade. Jamaican jerk is known for its very hot taste especially as it uses all sorts of spicy components like jalapeno, pepper and Tabasco. Do you really know how hot it is? Rubber gloves are advised to be on standby, especially when handling the jalapeno and the marinade itself.
18 chicken wings, tips cut off
2/3 cup finely chopped scallion
2 garlic cloves
1/2 tsp dried thyme, crumbled
1 1/2 tsp salt
1 1/2 tsp ground allspice
1/4 tsp freshly grated nutmeg
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 cup minced pickled jalapeno pepper, or to taste (wear rubber gloves)
1 tsp black pepper
6 drops of Tabasco, or to taste
2 tbsp soy sauce
1/4 cup vegetable oil
Mix all the marinade by putting the marinating ingredients into the food processor.
Line up the chicken in a large shallow dish, and then spoon over the marinade. Before rubbing, make sure to wear rubber gloves. Cover the dish and place in the fridge for at least one hour. It will be ideal to leave it overnight.
Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F. Oil the rack set of the oven and place a foil-line roasting pan below it. Arrange the chicken on the rack and bake for 30 to 35 minutes, or until cooked.
